Actress Choi Ji Woo recently sat down to have an interview with news outlet Sports Seoul, and answered a few questions regarding her agency YG Entertainment. She was first asked about her feelings towards the actor Kang Dong Won joining YG to which she replied, “Honestly, I don’t see singers from my agency much. It’s true that we don’t see each other often because of our different fields. We just spend time with each other when we attend year-end company dinners or special activities. I haven’t worked with Kang Dong Won before so we are not close on a personal level. I just found out about Kang Dong Won coming to YG Entertainment through the news.”
She finished up her statement by saying, “If I had to express the feeling in one word, ‘Wow!’ is what I would say. I was just surprised.” The interviewer then brought up the fact that this year her contract would be up for renewal. Choi Ji Woo commented, “I came to this company with friends I have worked with for a long time. I’ve spent 20 years with my stylist. Forming ties can be uneasy at first because there’s a lot of worries over uncertain points. However, I think my style is to think of my ties as precious and keep them long-lasting.”
She then added, “YG is like a roof to me. It has a secure feeling. CEO Yang Hyun Suk always believes in me and entrusts me [with what I do]. Don’t you think that’s why I was able to continuously promote within a certain range after coming to the company?” Choi Ji-woo (born Choi Mi-hyang on June 11, 1975) is a South Korean actress. She is most famous for starring in the television melodramas Winter Sonata, Beautiful Days and Stairway to Heaven.
